I'm jealous too!!

I have a few projects going now and I'm so busy with school and work that I feel bad starting another project. I really need to get some yarn for this sweater though because I it!! Maybe I'll be able to start next month.

Thankfully I have a kick-a$$ husband who asked if I wanted to go yarn shopping.

OUCH! Y'all don't have to twist my arm so hard--- I'm heading to the LYS on Thursday to buy more MMMMMalabrigo since I still have yarn money left, and my yarn for another sweater arrived this afternoon.

I guess I need to take an advance against next week's mad money.

I'm building a staaash, I'm building a staaash...

I got the pattern last week and am just waiting for my yarn. I heard about it from a Lime & Violet podcast. I am using this yarn in cinnamon

I actually first heard about the pattern from L&V too! I had to google it once I heard all the drooling going on.

This is my first time posting on this forum but I had a question. I'm wanting to knit Wicked as well and bought some Berroco Ultra Alpaca (http://berroco.com/yarns/ultra_alpaca.html) yarn for it last weekend. But I can't get guage! :( This is my second sweater and I'm a little lost. Should I return the yarn or try to knit a different size on the sweater? Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Try a different needle first. If your gauge is too small, go up a needle size, if too large, go down a needle size.

Hilde, are you a loose or tight knitter? I'm trying to figure out if I should even buy the Malabrigo for this pattern. I'm on spot or loose knitter.

hmmm...what else would be yummy for this sweater & not cost more than $60?
